The driver opened fire on the crowd and was killed in a shoutout with police. According to French authorities, the driver was identified as Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, 31.
French President François Hollande had said this was likely an act of terrorism, and authorities said Friday that more than 200 people had been injured and many of them were still in critical condition. Victims include people from France, Switzerland, Morocco, the U.S., Russia and Armenia. Here’s how you can help those affected by the attack in Nice:
Give For France is currently collecting donations to help the victims of the attack in Nice. You can donate online or give through your phone by texting “Paris” to 20222, which will donate $10.
The French Red Cross is providing support to survivors and their family and friends and fundraising for emergency preparedness, response and relief teams.
A GoFundMe has also been set up for the Copeland family in memory of Sean Copeland, 51, and his 11-year-old son Brodie Copeland of Texas. They were among those killed in the Nice attack.
Learn about resources to support victims
The United Nations has a support portal for victims of terrorism, which includes information about government efforts, a directory of resources to support victims of terrorism and news about terrorist attacks.
Many people on social media are using the hashtags #PrayForNice and #GiveForFrance to spread awareness about the attack and encourage others to give.
